    Woman Stops Home Intruder

    Scottsdale woman shoots at persistent intruder | EastValleyTribune.com



    A 74-year-old woman twice shot at a man after he made repeated attempts to break into her house, extort money from her and threatened to set fire to her garage, police said.

    Hugh Turner, 52, was arrested by Scottsdale police about 2 p.m. Friday on suspicion of threatening and intimidation and other offenses at a house in the 27800 block of North 94th Street.

    The woman alleged that Turner threatened to burn her house down after pouring gasoline in her garage about midnight on Thursday if she refused to give him money, police said.

    After the woman complied with his demands, Turner fled but later returned about 4 a.m. Saturday and tried to break into an upstairs door using a ladder. The woman fired two shots from a handgun, but the man got away unharmed, police said.

    Officers from the parks and preserve unit found Turner in a desert area near the house and arrested him. Turner was also held on suspicion of attempted arson on an occupied structure, theft by extortion, endangerment and disorderly conduct.

    Turner was treated at Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak hospital for an ankle injury he suffered after he jumped from the ladder at the woman's house, police said. He was booked into the Scottsdale City Jail. Police said the woman and man knew each other.
    Good for her.
